hi gerda,

i always try to look if somebody posted my question before, but i have a hard time searching posts in the themeforest comments board, since there does not appear to be a proper search function.

here´s my questions:

- is it possible to get the audio info columns on the album pages to support widget shortcode?

- what is the shortcode for the soundboard youtube video widget?

thanks and best regards, michael

PD: the soundboard theme ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thank you for your quick answer! the code you sent me works, but i was hoping to display the video like on the video page (with the pop-up on click).

shortcode doesn´t seem to work though. i tried to add a jw-player to the left column but the page just displays the shortcode itself. see here:

also in the right column you can see the video code works, except for the picture and title appearing. am i missing some lines in the code? or do i need to add some lines in the head of the single-audio.php?

this is the code i used (copied it from the video page):

<a title="test" target="_blank" data-rel="prettyPhoto" href="">
            <div class="video_item mosaic-block-v bar">
                <div class="video-icon"> … </div>
                <div class="mosaic-backdrop" style="display: block;"> … </div></div></a>

BTW soundboard is by miles the best music-website-theme i encountered so far. thanks for the great work (and for the excellent support!) – keep it up!

Thanks for your kind words :)

The only JWplayer shortcode included is the one you can see here:

You can not at a JWplayer playlist via shortcode.

Here is the code for the YouTube video including title and thumbnail:

<a href="" data-rel="prettyPhoto" target="_blank" title="">                                         
<div class="video_item mosaic-block-v bar">                                    
    <div class="video-icon">
          <div class="details mosaic-overlay vid-size">
                 Zisman / Fulgido - Escualo 
    <div class="mosaic-backdrop"> 
           <img width="220" height="140" src="" class="attachment-video wp-post-image" alt="" title="" />                                               

Would be great if we could have the option to add a music player as a widget in one of the sidebars. Anyway to do this?

Hi red_sun…I tried doing that but you lose some of the features of the player and it makes reading the information very small. I want to put this just above the “news” section on my home page:

<object width=”400” height=”160”><param name=”movie” value=””></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”400” height=”160”></embed></object>

How do I get this to look “pretty” and centre with a H1 tag that says “Player”?

Here is my web page again:

Please help!

Hey…nevermind. I figured it out. Thanks!

Ok cool!

hi, i would like to disable the build in soundcloud player and use an external plugin like “soundcloud is gold” because its more flexible.

if i use an external plugin now it gets overwritten by the build in player :(

how can i do this?

if possible, please let me know if i can chance something in the code, or if you can make an update on the theme. :D

thx! Theme is great so far!

Great! it worket, :D

I also noticed that the old soundcloud code dousn’t work with the sound cloud is gold plugin, regardless of the type of theme. so people who want to use this plugin instead need to use a new type of shortcode like [soundcloud id=”99999”] and than it works fine!

i thought maybe that is good for you to know if you get more questions about this matter. :)

Thank you again for your fast response!

i just now realized that the theme is not responsive :(:( tested it on my galaxy s3 and not mobile friendly, on desktop its a dream come true, but on android, iphone etc. its a nightmare. video’s don’t load, and audio dousnt play. :( any chance this theme will be more mobile friendly soon?

Soundboard is not responsive (yet), but all videos (JWplayer, YouTube), Soundcloud audio player and JW audio player work. I just re-tested everything on my demo site on my Iphone 5s and I couldn’t see any problems.


gibt es einen CSS-Befehl um die Hintergrundfarbe der “TAB”-Kästen und die der Artikel-Eintragsdaten zu ändern?

Danke dir!

Hi red_sun, danke für die Codes. Der Zweite hat aber nicht funktioniert oder ist für etwas anderes gedacht. Ich meinte nämlich das Datum, das immer über den Beiträgen erscheint. Sowohl für die Einträge, als auch bei den Videos (als Widget auf der Startseite). Lässt sich da was dran ändern?

Das hab’ ich tatsächlich falsch verstanden. Das Datum/Kommentaranzahl hat aber keine Hintergrundfarbe. Meinst Du die Textfarbe, oder?

.time-ago, .comment-nr {
    color: #000000;

Hi, super! Genau das, was ich gesucht habe. Hätte mich auch verständlicher ausdrücken können ;) LG


how do I give the page a title, ie, where it says “soundboard” on the top of the page in the live demo, can i put my band’s name? thanks

Hey there ! You will have to uploade your band’s logo as an image in Theme Options > General > Logo.

Apologies if this has been dealt with already (my search foo is not strong :) ), but I’m looking for a way to have links displayed in the excerpts that appear on the homepage, is that possible?

The links appear in the full post when I click through, but I can’t see any links in the excerpt, or any way to configure it.

Hey there! For theme support please log into the account that you’ve used to purchase the theme before posting a comment so that I can verify you as a valid customer. Thanks!

Sorry, thought I had… will do! :)

Reposting from the correct account :)

Thanks for verifying your purchase!

You would need to make the following changes to the theme files in order to display the content instead of an excerpt at the homepage. That way the links will display and function as links:

In the file template-home.php, line 86 and 94 , replace

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>


<?php global $more; $more = 0; ?>
<?php the_content(' read more…'); ?>

(you can also change the text “read more…” to something else) And then you could manually insert the “read more” link with the help of the insert more tag:



Nearly a year later and your theme still rocks!! I’m having some issues however that an update may have already addressed so I’m looking for the latest SB version. Question: Where can I get version information for your theme? Specifically, How can I tell what is the latest version of Sound Board. In the past I had to just peruse the comments on your project page and hope to find some mention of a newer version. I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t tell how to quickly get this info.

Thank you, LC

That’s great to hear :)

You can find the changelog in the online version of the documentation. Here is a link:


Just what I needed. Thanks!

What an awesome theme. Using it for over a year now. I have a question. Can I add a pop up banner to the homepage / frontpage and how? I tried several plugins but I must be making a mistake. Also adding PHP to the header did not work. THanx for any help!

Hey janpronk.. great to hear you like Soundboard :)

I don’t really have any experience with pop-ups, but I just tested a random plugin and it worked for me:

(For it to work, in Pop Overs > Settings >Pop Over loaded using, select “Page Footer” or “External Load”)


Thanks for an awesome theme! I love it!

I was wondering if it’s possible to put a background image for a single full width page? I’d like to replace the light gray skin background with an image on just one of my pages.

Hey there! Glad to hear you like the theme :)

Yeah that’s possible. You would first need to find the page ID of the page that you want to change the content background for ( )

Then, upload the background image, for example with Media > Add New. Copy the full URL of the image.

Now, put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS

.page-id-65 #bg-wrapper {

Replace “65” with the ID of the page you want to change the content background for and “http://www.fullURLtoImage.png” with the full URL of the image you want to use.


hi gerda!

the jwplayer on the album page gives me the following message:

Error loading player: No playable sources found

what could be wrong?

this is the url, just in case:

thank you in advance and best regards,

i use mp3. the same files work in the widget player, but the one on the album page does not.

could it have something to do with the recent jw-player update to 6.5?

Please get in touch via the user contact form no my profile page and send me link and login info so that I can take a look.

I am considering to purchase this theme. But would to know one thing. Is it possible to link the ticket buying to internal(!) URL and let it link into a WooCommerce related event product? (by installing one of the available WooCommerce event plugins) ?

Hey jheersch… thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

You can link the buy ticket button to whatever URL you want. Simply make sure to enter the FULL URL including http://www. at the beginning.


Hi RedSun,

Thanks again for your great work. It’s a real pleasure to work with soundboard.

I have already check in the past comments and use this in the correct section :

#sidebar h3.widgettitle {
    font-size: 20px;

or the same with footer, content, without #...h3, etc…

but without effect on my website. The things I wanna do are explained in the image below. That’s the only way I’m sure to be understood :D

Merci encore !!! CT

Thanks a lot Red_Sun,

I will test that asap and I ‘ll come back to you !!!

Excatly what I want !!!! I will try with different font size for the widget but that’s OK !!!

Thanks again for your reactivity !!!

You are very welcome.


Excellent theme! I’m having trouble with the background image. When I choose to repeat it, it shows up on the bottom half of the page, but not the top half. If I choose stretch, it works across the whole page. Thoughts on why the repeat option shows up on the bottom half but not the top?

Well, if one checks the “read me” file one may see that when choosing a background image to repeat, you have to delete the background color as the background color takes precedence.

Thanks for the theme!

Glad you like the theme, mbertoldi! :)

In my Wordpress dashboard when I edit a page, under page attributes, “no-parent” is selected. Right under that drop down, I get this warning:

“Warning: file_get_contents(/homepages/2/d443576931/htdocs/thecoronationmusic/wp-content/themes/soundboard/404.php) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /homepages/2/d443576931/htdocs/thecoronationmusic/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php on line 948”

What do I need to do?

Can you send me link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page so that I can take a look at this issue? Thanks!

How do you remove the margin between the content and footer completely? Mainly The transparent 40px space between footer/content. I searched all over the style.css

Thanks in advance

Hey Kaviya!

I added some jQuery code so that the footer always sticks at the bottom, no matter how little content is on the site. If there is enough content on the site, the footer will appear 40px below the content.

You can find the code in the file js/scripts.js, line 9:

jQuery('#wraptop').css('padding-bottom', footerheight + 40);

Remove ”+ 40” and the footer will display right below the content.


This theme is great, but m facing some issues with woocommerce. It shows “our theme does not declare WooCommerce support – if you encounter layout issues please read our integration guide or choose a WooCommerce theme :)”

Shop page is distorted even after disabling woocommerce own css.

Hey spanningtree! For theme support please log into the account that you’ve used to purchase the theme before posting a comment so that I can verify you as a valid customer.

Please also let me know which version of Soundboard you are using. WooCommerce support was added in version 3.00.


Hi hows it going?

I am having problems with my twitter feed. It was working perfectly and now has all of a sudden gone blank. Is this due to a wordpress upgrade? How can i fix this?


Hey there!

Twitter made some major changes to it’s API. The new API (1.1) only works with authentication of each user. This is why the Soundboard twitter widget stopped working and I removed it in Soundboard version 3.06.

Please use a plugin instead. Fore example:


ok thanks for that red_sun

I loved your theme and loved your support even more. Thank you. I’m back on themeforest looking for another theme and your themes are my first choice. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you so much for your kind words!

I’m glad you enjoy working with my themes and are happy with my support. I’m working hard on my third theme right now ;)


Do you plan to make this template responsive at some point? We do really miss this feature.

Hey insomer! I don’t want to make any promises but I will try – as soon as I find the time. I’m not sure how difficult it will be though…
